The weekly look at Japanese sales is now available thanks to Media Create’s numbers, where the top games are ranked according to their sales for the previous week. Coming as no surprise to anyone, Yokai Watch 2 has managed to claim top spot again, selling a whopping 330k copies in its second week of availability. The game has already managed to outsell the first Yokai Watch, will still claims a charted position at number six, just below Mario Kart 8.
Of the top ten games on the list, seven out of ten are handheld titles in favor of the Nintendo 3DS. Mario Kart 8 continues to hang on to the charts at number five this week, while a new Atelier game on PS3 debuted last week, claiming the third spot on the chart. Watch Dogs for PS3 hangs onto the top ten at number ten. Despite debuting this week in Japan as part of a retail package, Wii Sports Club only sold around 2k copies. Most likely everyone who wanted to experience those games did so thanks to downloading them from the Nintendo eShop.
